Ecological Description (Applied Ecological Services, Inc. 1997)

Approximately 75% of the soils are mapped as hydric mineral soils. The stream channel in this area is deeply down-cut, with 4'-5' high banks that are severely under-cut, exposing tree roots. The narrow channel is congested with log jams and other debris. The riparian vegetation consists of large willows (>30" dbh) and an overstocked understory of mulberry, boxelder, buckthorn, and woody vines. The ground flora is heavily shade suppressed and species poor. Bare soils and abundant downed woody debris predominate, with scattered disturbance-site species, such as white avens and buckthorn seedlings.
